    Hey BD,

    Been trying my luck at the land-based sharking stuff in the last month with five trips out, all casting. First trip caught a nice-sized leopard, nothing to write home about. Following three trips SKUNK. Then last night I connected with my target species :-) .. after trying four different beaches. Lol

    Soupfin shark!! Have hooked tons of these things while on boats drifting for halibut or while on the squid grounds fishing seabass/yellows, but I've always gotten broken off. Stoked to finally land one. Credit goes to Spencer / Terra Firma Tackle for helping out a rookie =)

    Bait: Fresh mackerel, caught same day. Got bit on head baits and tail baits.
    Rig: "Pulley Rig," with coated wire, heavy mono and (2) hooks - a 9/0 and 5/0. 6oz. pyramid sinker with spider legs.
    Method: Casting from beach
    Location: Orange County
